HPV Cancer Center Consortium (Overview)


The HPV Cancer Center Consortium started in 2015 and has held seven annual meetings hosted by various cancer centers across the U.S. in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), with the 2023 meeting held virtually after a hiatus due to the pandemic. The Consortium will reconvene through an in-person meeting on April 16-17, 2024, in Lexington, Kentucky, hosted by the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center. Philanthropic support provided by the Markey Cancer Foundation. 

Meeting Objectives

The mission of the HPV Cancer Center Consortium is to convene cancer centers to catalyze research, foster partnerships and advance equitable HPV vaccination to reduce the burden of HPV-related cancers.

With a focus on HPV vaccination research, the objectives of the 2024 HPV Cancer Center Consortium meeting are to:

  1. Provide updates on the existing evidence base and emerging research areas
  2. Identify gaps and opportunities for future research led by cancer centers
  3. Foster networking and collaborations across cancer centers
  4. Support trainee and early-stage investigator engagement in the field

Who Should Attend This Meeting?

The primary audience for the Consortium meeting is individuals engaged in research to increase HPV vaccination rates at academic cancer centers in the U.S. (e.g., faculty, scientists, trainees, and staff), including all cancer centers with and without NCI designation. In addition, individuals that partner with cancer centers on HPV vaccination research and initiatives may also be interested in participating, such as survivors of HPV-related cancers; non-academic cancer centers; and community, cancer advocacy, public health, government, healthcare, and payor organizations.
